Analeigh Tipton In Rafael Cennamo – 2013 Art of Elysium ‘Heaven’ Gala

Analeigh Tipton in Rafael Cennamo - Art of Elysium Heaven Gala

Analeigh Tipton attended the 2013 Art of Elysium ‘Heaven’ Gala held at 2nd Street Tunnel in California on Saturday.

She wowed in a low-backed black Rafael Cennamo gown. The dress has some great details, including a sheer panel in the front, lacey trim and bracelet-length sleeves.

I love everything about this look. She accessorized with simple crystal studs, a cocktail ring, Rupert Sanderson pointy-toed black pumps and a black patent Nancy Gonzalez clutch.

She could have chosen bolder accessories that would stand out more, but I like that she picked ones that let the dress shine on its own.

The perfect finishing touch was her nude makeup and wispy pulled-back bun. We have been seeing this hairstyle all over the red carpet lately and I have a feeling we will continue to see more of it.

2012 American Country Awards

The 2012 American Country Awards took place at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada yesterday evening.

Usually there are a few stand outs from these country music events, but last night they were all equally meh.

Where is Taylor Swift when you need her?

Carrie Underwood: I do like Carrie’s peach lace Georges Chakra Couture bubble dress with lines of pearls, but the B Brian Atwood ‘Cassiane’ fringe sandals and same old, same old hairstyle kill this look for me.

LeAnn Rimes: The singer kept it simple, wearing a black Dolce & Gabbana ruched stretch-crepe dress with a scooped neckline. Her snakeskin Tom Ford pumps keep things interesting, but her white Tom Ford clutch is quite the head scratcher.

Kristin Chenoweth: The actress/singer was my favourite at this event – I’m sure I don’t need to explain why – wearing a Rafael Cennamo electric-blue gown. The vibrant bustier gown with corset detailing was styled with blue-toned Martin Katz jewels.

Miranda Lambert: Usually one for wearing gowns at country music events, Miranda opted for a high-neck Reem Acra Fall 2012 black-and-gold mini dress. Unfortunately, the risk did not pay off for her. The look is not particularly flattering and the high bun is too cutesy for her.

With the exception of Kristin who looks flawless, they all can and have done much better.

Nicole Scherzinger In Rafael Cennamo – 21st Music Industry Trust Awards

Nicole Scherzinger attended the 21st Music Industry Trust Awards at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London on Monday evening.

The American ‘X-Factor’ UK judge wore a Rafael Cennamo Fall 2012 gown.

Her black silk gown, detailed with cut-outs with sheer illusion panels and an illusion open back, is a sexy look, but I still find myself unimpressed by anything she wears as I find her style seriously overrated and dated.

A glossy red lip and braided updo completed her look, along with gold drop earrings.

Debra Messing In Rafael Cennamo – Post-It Your Words Stick With Them Program Launch

Debra Messing attended the launch for Post-It’s new anti-bullying campaign, held at New York City’s PS 15 Roberto Clemente Elementary School on Wednesday afternoon.

The actress showed of the ever-popular fit-and-flare silhouette wearing a Rafael Cennamo Fall 2012 cocktail dress.

The pewter-and-black dress features an interesting play on the classic houndstooth print in a metallic jacquard.

Simple black pumps and signature red waves complete the look.

Do you love this metallic look, or is it a bit too much for the casual daytime event?

Ellie Kemper In Rafael Cennamo – 2012 Do Something Awards

Ellie Kemper also joined in on the annual celebration of those trying to make the world a better place at the 2012 Do Something Awards in Santa Monica, California on Sunday evening.

The ‘Bridesmaids’ beauty looked charming wearing a Rafael Cennamo metallic bronze jacquard dress with a cute fit-and-flare silhouette.

Taking the navy blue accents from her dress, Ellie opted for a navy blue stone cocktail ring and matching nail polish.

With red lipstick as vibrant as her flame coloured hair, she completed her look with black strappy sandals.

The 2012 Do Something Awards will air on Tuesday (August 21) at 9pm EST on VH1.

Tulisa Contostavlos In Celeb Boutique & Nicole Scherzinger In Rafael Cennamo – X Factor UK Press Conference

Tulisa Contostavlos and Nicole Scherzinger attended the X Factor UK press conference at the Corinthia Hotel in London yesterday afternoon which saw Nicole unveiled as the new judge.

I honestly thought the only people who still wore bandage dresses were Britney Spears and Tamara Ecclestone.

Tulisa’s yellow, white and grey Celeb Boutique dress, which looks like a Herve Leger dress, has put me in a time warp when ‘The Hills’ was the most popular show on TV and when Victoria Beckham had the blonde pixie cut.

This look is so dated.

Nicole, who usually takes the crown for opting for dated looks, looked quite sophisticated wearing a Rafael Cennamo Fall 2012 dress.

Her white cap-sleeve dress with a plunging neckline was styled with platform ankle-strap peep-toes and a silver cuff.

I think it is safe to say that once again I will not be keeping up with the X Factor fashion this season.
